The Highest Possible Authority

Andy Ihnatko:

The scale of the crisis is immaterial. People are fleeing the homeland that their families have known for several generations, carrying only what they were able to gather up in the two minutes they had before they fled. We are commanded to accept them. The order comes from the highest possible authority: our humanity.

The Great Melting Pot — that’s the beacon of America.
